Financial conflicts signal that she carries water for Obama's Facebook cartel; Facebook's bribery scheme exposed

Investigation | AMERICANS FOR INNOVATION | Apr. 14, 2014, Updated Apr. 25, 2014 | PDF
Yuri Milner, CEO, Digital Sky, DST,, Facebook's second largest shareholder, and chief sidekick of Alisher Usmanov aka Asmanov, Russia's Richest Oligarch
Yuri Milner
Took his Russian Digital Sky Company, a Goldman Sachs Moscow partner, from $0 to $12 billion (with a B) in just two years. Milner is Facebook's second largest investor. Milner purchased a $120 million mansion in Palo Alto, CA.

New, 4/23/ 2014
Obama's HHS nominee, Sylvia M. Burwell, holds multiple stocks in Milner's company through her T.Rowe Price and Allianz holdings. See financial disclosure below.
Update: Apr. 22, 2014—Simple Geometric Math ties President Barack Obama to President Vladimir Putin via Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov—upon whom both Presidents depend to finance their off-the-books agendas

Apr. 25 Update – T.P.P. risks more of our property and Free speech:
President Obama is off in Asia promoting the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership). This administration has conducted these negotiations in shrouds of secrecy using their crony lawyers goose stepping through the Rose Garden.
What's Wrong With The TPP? Trans-Pacific Partnership
Like Obamacare, proponents want it implemented without robust debate. Insiders indicate more free speech and intellectual property rights will be flowing to big infringers in this so-called "reduction of trade barriers." Sounds good, doesn't it?

If we have learned nothing about the rhetoric of this administration, we've learned that they consistently say one thing to mask a secret agenda. In war its called "misdirection." Psychologists call it "pathological lying." The Bible calls it "the sin of bearing false witness." The devil is in the details. Demand full debate and transparency before any such decisions are made.
Geometric Logic: If A implies B and B implies C, then A implies C

If Obama implies Usmanov and Usmanov implies Putin, then Obama implies Putin.

Perhaps this unholy alliance explains why everything about this Ukrainian crisis is squirrely. For many years, President Obama's Facebook Cartel relied upon Larry Summers' protégé, oligarch Alisher Usmanov, to feed Facebook billions of dollars of dubious Russian cash to pump Facebook's pre-IPO valuation to record levels. President Obama also relied upon the Facebook platform to micro-target LOFO voters to get elected.

Vladimir Putin is well known to be a under the thumb of Russia's oligarchs, Alisher Usmanov chief among them.

While politicians on both sides yack away about the Ukrainian Crisis, they are mere mouthpieces for the off-the-books dealings among American and Russian oligarchs on both sides of the Atlantic. In America, its the Facebook Cartel driving Obama (in coordination with their partners in Moscow). In Russia it's the Facebook-look-alike Vkontake Cartel (probably using the same code as Baidu's and Facebook's, provided by Fenwick & West LLP, with their partners in America) run by Alisher Usmanov.

Flag of Ireland
Warning to Ireland: Just recently Facebook announced it is trying to persuade banking officials in the Republic of Ireland to establish the Facebook Cartel's long planned virtual currency, formerly known as Facebook Credits, then Bitcoin, and digital credits. Keep in mind we're really not talking about Facebook per se. We're talking about James W. Breyer, Accel Partners LLP, IDG Capital China, Goldman Sachs Moscow, Alisher Usmanov, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley, State Street Corp, you know, the banks that the American people "bailed out" in 2008. Whatever the latest name of the day, it is still putting lipstick on a pig. One cannot build a sound economic house on a corrupt moral foundation. The bad guys don't understand that ethic. Greed, avarice and power-mongering are age-old vices. They are short lived as philosophical underpinnings for economic and social vitality. Run.
Update: Apr. 19, 2014—Why isn't President Obama Sanctioning Alisher Usmanov and Yuri Milner—Lawrence "Larry" H. Summers' Russian oligarch protÉgÉs? hiding secrets of his & Zuckerberg's dubious origins?

Alisher Usmanov aka Asmanov
Alisher Usmanov
The Richest Oligarch in Russia; Facebook's largest outside investor at the IPO.
Two Russian oligarchs are conspicuously missing from President Obama's Ukrainian sanctions list: (1) Alisher Usmanov and (2) Yuri Milner. Bloomberg labels Usmanov as Russia's richest man. Milner is his sidekick. Usmanov and Milner, along with Facebook COO Sheryl K. Sandberg, are protégés of Obama's bailout director, Lawrence "Larry" Summers.

While Summers, Sandberg and Milner were at the World Bank in 1991-1993, they helped orchestrate the disastrous Soviet voucher system that created the corrupt oligarch system in Russia. Usmanov and Milner pumped billions of dollars, maybe tens of billion, into private, unregulated Facebook "dark pools" investments underwritten by Goldman Sachs. This activity was blessed by another substantial Facebook "dark pools" investor, S.E.C. Chair Mary L. Schapiro. Summers also oversaw over $13 billion GIVEN to Goldman in bailout funds during this period. Some of it went overseas, probably to Usmanov and Milner, and it is now suspected that it was used to buy Facebook stock through Usmanov's Moscow partner, Goldman Sachs.

This activity helped pump Facebook's pre-IPO valuation to $100 billion. Facebook's micro-targeting of the LOFO vote (low information voter) is credited with getting President Obama elected in 2008 and 2012. What skeletons in the closet is President Obama hiding in the omission of his favorite Russians, Usmanov and Milner, from his Ukrainian sanctions list? We think Usmanov and Milner know President Obama and Mark Zuckerberg/Facebook are the best deals their dirty money could buy, with more than a little coaching from Comrade Summers.
Sylvia M. Burwell
Fig. 1—Sylvia M. Burwell promised to tell the truth about her up to $10 million in financial holdings, including vendors as well as Russian and Chinese social networks tied to the Facebook cartel, and therefore to the NSA. It’s a nasty web of conflicts of interest (illegal for government officials if not disclosed and waived). Let’s see if she does. Click here to download Sylvia M. Burwell's 2012 Financial Report and Analysis.

(Apr. 13, 2014)—AFI investigators have now analyzed hundreds of financial disclosures from the judicial and executive branches. Sylvia M. Burwell's 2012 financial disclosure is reported below. She declared her net worth at up to $10 million. We discovered this weekend that much of it is held in the same Facebook “dark pools” as a select list of a dozen senior White House officials and Leader v. Facebook judges.

On Friday, President Obama nominated Burwell to replace Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). Our investigation uncovered substantial conflicts of interest that may require her to divest of many of her holdings. Public impartiality is her duty.

Burwell holds stock in vendors

Burwell holds stock in Booz Allen HAMILTON and Athenahealth, that are both vendors to Obama’s Chief Technology Officer, Todd Y. Park, is the founder of Athenahealth. He also worked for Booz Allen. Todd Park’s brother, Edward Y. Park is their current chief operating officer. Burwell also holds stock in no-bid contractors CGI, Inc. and Accenture, as well as Boston Scientific, a collaborator to and the Facebook cartel.

See previous posts:

These companies have troubling ties to Chinese and Russian social networks, Baidu, Yandex and These companies are closely tied to Facebook, Goldman Sachs Group and other Facebook financiers incl. T.Rowe Price, Baillie Gifford, Vanguard and Fidelity. Facebook’s cooperation with the NSA makes these byzantine alliances all the more troubling.

Burwell, appears to be a water carrier for the Facebook cartel. If confirmed, she will replace Kathleen Sebelius who oversaw the disastrous roll out.

Sebelius issued no-bid contracts to CGI, Inc. cronies of Michelle Obama and U.S. CTO Todd Y. Park. She also allowed Park to give away massive amounts of U.S. healthcare data in a program called “Health Datapalooza.”

Russian Nesting Dolls, Matryoshka
Fig. 2—Which of these Russian nesting dolls holds the secret? See proof of the Facebook Cartel's nesting doll deceptions below.

The Obama White house appears to be organized like a set of Russian nesting dolls.

The outer doll is the public face, but the nasty stuff is inside. This would explain why no one gets fired in this administration. They’re just following orders.

An exposé of the nested doll strategy among Obama’s Facebook cartel may help readers better interpret Burwell’s holdings. However, if you want to jump to the Burwell analysis below, click here.

Financial disclosures are starting to tell their secrets

When one studies hundreds of reports like we have, the data starts to tell us its secrets.

Our first observation is that the financial reporting mechanism is flawed. It invites fraud and misrepresentation. Essentially, the report gives a blessing to the superficial, somewhat meaningless reporting of only the outer doll. Nonetheless, if one persists in analyzing the underlying data, which is extremely time consuming, the outer doll eventually yields her secrets.

Russian Nesting Dolls, Matryoshka

Discover your inner doll

The vast majority of actual stock holdings are nested within mutual funds. Judges, bureaucrats and politicians hide their true holdings inside the funds.

Reporting ownership of the funds, or "the outer dolls," reveals very little

The uninformed thinking among our public officials is that judges and government officials do not have to report their stock holdings within mutual funds for the purpose of recusal. Unscrupulous lawyers support this notion. However, it is dead wrong according to any honest reading of the conflict of interest laws.

Bedrock ethical principle: “Avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety”

Conflict of interest laws are founded on the concept of avoiding impropriety and the appearance of impropriety. For example, see Canon of Conduct for U.S. Judges. Any interpretation that violates this bedrock principle is wrong, even if it is written by a committee of judges. This circumstance is another proof that the concept of attorney and judge "self-policing" is broken. This lack of ethical discipline contributes to America's growing lawlessness.

A waiver from financial conflicts disclosure for mutual funds is wrongheaded. It would be like me selling you a pair of jeans for $50, but you know there is a $1,000,000 check made out to you in the back pocket. According to the wrongheaded interpretation, you only have to disclose the $50 value of the jeans, while you secretly know the true value is $1,000,050.

Waiving nested investing disclosure is a license to deceive

For public officials intent on rigging the judicial system, this nesting appears to serve two main purposes.

First it provides an “I didn’t know” or “the Judicial Conference says I don’t have to tell you” excuse for not disclosing holdings.

Second, it enables bribery, coercion and insider trading of and by judges.

Promises of a big Facebook IPO were dangled in front of the Leader v. Facebook judges. The bribers could not get away with giving the judges Facebook stock directly, so they nested Facebook holdings inside crony funds, like Fidelity Contrafund.

Fidelity fund manager Robert C. Ketterson was a fellow director of the National Venture Capital Association (NCVA) with James W. Breyer, Accel Partners LLP chairman, Facebook’s then chairman, and Facebook’s largest shareholder and beneficiary. Also serving the NVCA with Breyer and Ketterson were Ann H. Lamont and Anne Rockhold. Lamont is closely tied to Todd Y. Park and Robert P. Kocher, MD. Obamacare and architects, and Athenahealth and Castlight Health, founded by Todd Y. Park and technology supplier to

To our knowledge, Burwell has not disclosed any of these conflicts of interest.

Finding Facebook inner dolls

In Leader v. Facebook, substantial amounts of Facebook stock was held by the judges and regulators, sometimes in Doll #2, sometimes in Doll #4 and so on.

For example, a prominent pre-IPO investor in Facebook was Fidelity Contrafund (FCNTX).

Federal officials holding Contrafund include Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., Circuit Judge Kimberly A. Moore, Federal Election Commission Chairman, John J. Sullivan, Commerce Secretary Rebecca M. Blank, Attorney General Eric H. Holder and Office of Management and Budget Director, Sylvia M. Burwell—now nominated to replace Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Note that the total numbers of holders of Fidelity Contrafund in this administration and the Leader v. Facebook judiciary is limited to a select few insiders. The hand waiving we’ve seen when confronted by these facts is “Well, Contrafund is a popular fund. Everybody’s got some.” No they don’t. We’ve checked.

Out of over 200 financial disclosures we’ve analyzed, only 11 hold Fidelity Contrafund. Those 11 are all senior Obama officials or Leader v. Facebook judges. These people likely had insider information about Contrafund’s Facebook investing plans.

Leader v. Facebook judge Leonard P. Stark holds seven Fidelity investments, all of which hold large investments from NESTED Fidelity Securities Lending Cash Central Fund and Fidelity Cash Central Funds, both large Facebook pre-IPO investors. He did not disclose these conflicts, despite his promise to do so during the case, at his U.S. Senate confirmation hearing on Apr. 22, 2010: "I screen cases as they are referred to me for potential conflicts of interest... My practice has been to recuse myself if I have a close relationship with any of the parties, identified witnesses, or counsel that would interefere with my neutrality or compromise the appearance of justice." PDF p. 84.

Fidelity has invested $818,228,924 in Facebook

Leader v. Facebook judges did not disclose that they would benefit from decisions favorable to Facebook

Fidelity Contrafund made a large investment in private Facebook before the IPO. As of Jun. 30, 2012, Contrafund had $413,476,551. These investments were brokered by Goldman Sachs in unregulated Wall Street  “dark pools.” See 'Fidelity's Danoff Bets on Facebook'' by Miles Weiss, Bloomberg, Jun. 1, 2011. Also see our previous post on dark pools at “Wall Street Manipulation of Judges, Politicians, and Regulators Exposed by Leader v. Facebook Judicial Corruption” by Americans For Innovation, Jan. 7, 2014.

According to Morningstar, a total of 16 Fidelity funds have invested $818,228,924 in Facebook. The numbers are staggering. Any lawyerly excuse for not disclosing the conflict rings hollow.

1. Is nested investing illegal? Generally No. Unless you're hiding insider trading, then its fraud.

2. Should nested stocks be disclosed when the judge’s holdings will be benefited by decisions for one party or the other? Yes.

3. Otherwise, what is the point of disclosing a mutual fund at all? The devil is in the details. The courts are protecting the devil.

The name of the fund becomes meaningless unless one is required to disclose the substance of the holding.

The 217-page judicial advisory opinion contains a dubious Sec. 106 on mutual funds

The Judicial Policy, Sec. 106, Mutual Funds opinion says that the stocks held in a mutual fund are not a financial interest unless you manage it personally. Wouldn't that be everyone since no one forces the judge to purchase a particular mutual fund and its contents? The decision to purchase the fund is enough to force disclosure, even under the dubious Sec. 106 revised definition.

A judge chooses a mutual fund precisely because of the expected performance of returns of the stocks and bonds managed by the fund. Each fund issues a report of its holdings twice a year, so this guideline against disclosure is suspiciously flawed. The holder gets reports of the holdings, therefore a judge holding the fund should always disclose when a litigant comes before him in which he will benefit from favorable rulings. Self-interest induces a judge consciously or subconsciously to provide favorable rulings for his or her own holdings. That is precisely why full disclosures of conflicts of interest, and recusals (if conflicts of interest exist), are absolutely necessary. That is a well settled principal of impartiality and just common sense.

One can imagine the hoops the Judicial Conference jumped through to revise Sec. 106 to its current tortured flip-flopping. Even young children understand these basic concepts of fairness.

The Sec. 106 “safe harbor” opinion is a license for judge bias

The Judicial Conference created a dubious “safe harbor” opinion in Section 106. The language undermines the well-settled language of Canons 2 and 3—to “avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety.”  

In short, the opinion is four pages of ethical swiss cheese, with two shiny brass bookends that state that judges have “no duty to affirmatively monitor the underlying investments.” After this statement, the opinion contains four pages of exceptions. For example, you may have to disclose IRA's, 401(k)’s, brokerage accounts, nested holdings, number of investors, etc.

Sec. 20-2 “even one share of stock” dictates recusal

The mutual fund waiver opinion is contained in the same 217-page advisory opinion that says, “Ownership of even one share of stock by the judge’s spouse would require disqualification.” Section 20-2.

So which is it? Ownership of even one share dictates recusal, or you can do whatever the hell you want if you hide your stock in a mutual fund?

If a family member must disclose even one $50 share, then how is that judges can avoid disclosing tens of millions of dollars just because they are held through a mutual fund. This rule makes absolutely no sense, which makes its origin suspicious. It served somebody’s intent to hide investments, clearly.

Sec. 106 flip-flops between stating the law and excusing judges from it

In the midst of the self-defined exceptions in Sec. 106, the opinion rightly restates the law that a judge must disclose if his or her holdings would be “substantially” affected by the outcome of the ruling. If a judge wants to hide a holding of Facebook stock inside his or her Fidelity or T.Rowe Price mutual fund, then his or her opinion would be that it is not substantial, and thus self-serving. In Sec. 106, the definition of “substantial” is in the eye of the beholder. This rule is vague and duplicitous.

Holdings in the biggest tech IPO in U.S. history doesn't require disclosure? Are you kidding me?

The Facebook IPO was the largest tech IPO in history; valued at roughly $100 billion. Both Fidelity and T. Rowe Price held substantial pre-IPO  investments that were reported widely in the press. In fact, T. Rowe held more than 5% of the pre-IPO stock in Facebook. T.Rowe's holding required specific disclosure in the S.E.C. S-1 Registration. If the Fidelity and T.Rowe Price interests held by the Leader v. Facebook judges were not substantially benefited by decisions favorable to Facebook, then this rule's so-called "safe harbor" is moot. Its existence telegraphs an attempt to fabricate excuses for illegal intent.

Even if we were to accept the Judicial Policy Opinion No. 106 as legal, no justification can possibly exist for these judges and regulatory officials to assert that they would not benefit substantially from Leader v. Facebook decisions favorable to Facebook. And yet, the judges were silent, as were the regulators at the Patent Office.

Note: The chief counsel at the U.S. Patent Office advising the judges on the unprecedented third reexamination of Leader’s patent, William J. Stoffel, lists Fidelity and Vanguard as two of his conflicts of interest. The Patent Office is currently stonewalling FOIA requests for background information on these judges and the Director, David J. Kappos. See "Patent Office Removes Critical Leader v. Facebook Disclosure items" by Americans For Innovation, Aug. 15, 2013.

Sylvia M. Burwell is a card-carrying member of the Facebook cartel

Of Sylvia M. Burwell’s 89 holdings, 59 contain Facebook interests. Disturbingly, she holds interests in vendors who benefit greatly from the Obamacare no-bid website, including the following:

  1. Facebook – 9 holdings; makes claims that the technology being used is “open source,” even though Leader Technologies proved in federal court on 11 of 11 counts that Facebook infringes their invention.
  2. Baidu Inc. (China) – 9 holdings; Baidu is tied to Sands Capital, which is tied to Athenahealth; Baidu is a heavily censored Facebook clone in China financed by the same Wall Street and Silicon Valley people who started Facebook; Baidu may be using the same stolen source code from Leader Technologies, Inc.; Leader’s former attorney and Facebook’s current attorney, Fenwick & West LLP, has just placed a junior associate at the top of Baidu’s patenting operation.
  3. James W. Breyer – Burwell was formerly employed by Wal-Mart; Facebook’s largest shareholder and chairman, James W. Breyer, was a Wal-Mart director until recently; Breyer is implicated in the Wal-Mart Mexican bribery scandal
  4. Athenahealth – 5 holdings; Athenahealth is a no-bid supplier of social networking technology to; founded by Todd Y.Park, the Obama White House’s current CTO , and former chief architect of; Park’s brother, Edward Y. Park; Todd Y. Park’s ethics disclosures have gone missing and these conflicts have never been disclosed.
  5. CGI, Inc. – 3 holdings; CGI is the original no-bid contractor run by Michelle Obama’s former Princeton friend.
  6. Booz Allen Hamilton – 3 holdings; Booz Allen is Todd Y. Park’s former employer and beneficiary of no-bid contracts.
  7. Accenture – 6 holdings; Accenture is the no-bid replacement to CGI, Inc.
  8. Boston Scientific – 5 holdings; Boston Scientific is implicated in the theft of Leader Technologies’ social networking invention.
  9. – 6 holdings; these Russian companies are associated with Russian oligarchs Yuri Milner and vAlisher Usmanov; these men are implicated in the laundering of TARP money into Facebook insider shares which drove Facebook’s pre-IPO valuation to $100 billion.
  10. Tesla Motors – 5 holdings; Tesla received $456 million in stimulus funds; is closely associated with Elon Musk, a contemporary of Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard, and a close associate to the Facebook cartel; Musk is a notorious contributor to the Obama political campaigns; the recommendation to fund Tesla came from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's former chief security advisor, Mike Sheehy, in collaboration with Facebook's attorney, Cooley Godward LLP, Donald K. Stern; Stern also recommended Leader v. Facebook judges, Leonard P. Stark, and Harry Reid sponsored former chief counsel, Evan J. Wallach.
  11. 64 holdings in TARP and Facebook IPO beneficiaries, incl. Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, BlackRock, T.RowePrice, Vanguard.

  14. Lawrence “Larry” Summers – lurking in the background is the former director of the National Economic Council; fed tens of billions of TARP bailout funds to his cronies at Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan; Summers mentored Yuri Milner, Digital Sky Technologies, DST,, Yandex, Bank Menatep, World Bank, Soviet privatization Vouchers, which directly connects him to at least six Burwell holdings; Summers also mentored Sheryl S. Sandberg, COO, Facebook, which directly connects him to the myriad of Facebook holdings shown above.

    Summers is now believed to have helped engineer the 2008 banking "crisis" in order to use public funds to feed tens of billions in TARP funds to his cronies; billions of dollars of which were then pumped into unregulated Facebook insider stock to boost its pre-IPO valuation. No wonder insiders judges and regulators wanted in. They were promised "once in a lifetime" returns. This has been public bribery on a never-before-seen scale.

Burwell’s Ethics Pledge & Divestitures

On Mar. 4, 2013, Burwell signed an Ethics Statement. She said:

"I will not participate personally and substantially in any particular matter that has a direct and predictable effect on my financial interests." —Sylvia M. Burwell, Mar. 4, 2013

At that time, Burwell divested herself of Amazon, ING Global Real Estate, Vanguard VGSNX, Nuveen Real Estate, MetLife and Wal-Mart holdings before taking the OMB job.

Will Burwell divest herself of most of her holdings before taking the HHS job? Most of her holdings have conflicting interests. Since so much of involves social networking technologies. Those technologies have been proven to be stolen from Ohio-based innovator, Leader Technologies, Inc.

It should be an interesting Senate hearing.

  1. Great investigative journalism! If we had more mainstream journalists digging like you, maybe Washington wouldn't be in the mess it is now. I suggest that every reader send this post to his/her Senators and Congresspersons. Now let's see who are the card carrying Facebook Cartel members among our politicians alongside Reid and Pelosi.

  2. Email Comment by "A Regular Reader"

    Isn't it amazing that by the time these people's backgrounds get presented to Congress in confirmation hearings, they're squeaky clean ready for Mom and apple pie? Congress needs to stop rubber stamping these people and start turning down the nominations of these greedy b___ds. We need public servants, not a___holes. It took you just one weekend to dig into Burwell's background and find this dirt. Good work.

  3. Email Comment by Rat Catcher:

    MORE BAD NEWS ABOUT LEONARD P. STARK, who was appointed to the bench a week after the Leader v. Facebook trial where he gave Facebook and Obama a fabricated on-sale bar verdict against Leader--even though Leader PROVED that Facebook literally infringed all 11 claims they made against Facebook.

    Before coming to the Delaware District Court in late 2006 as a Magistrate Judge, Stark had been an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Delaware (2002-2006). I pulled his records and made a spreadsheet of his cases. HE HAD NO EXPERIENCE WITH PATENTS. None. Half of his cases were related to drugs and firearms. Please post this spreadsheet I am attaching.

    [Editor] here's the spreadsheet:

    ...also here:

    Soooooo, neither Obama appointee assigned to Leader v. Facebook had ANY experience in patent law.

    This rat gets more smelly by the day.

  4. WE HAVE FOLKS READING EVERY WORD OF THE LEADER V. FACEBOOK TRIAL RECORD. Just discovered another of Tex's "Koinky Dinks." ON OCTOBER 27, 2009 Facebook changed law firms from White & Case to Cooley Godward *** but the attorneys stayed the same. Cooley was allied with ***Nancy Pelosi's advisor Mike Sheehy*** and were dishing out billions in ENERGY STIMULUS to Obama cronies. Here's the filing (just emailed to you, please post):

    Guess what else occured on OCTOBER 27, 2009. The newly appointed Obama nominee as director of the Patent Office, DAVID J. KAPPOS PURCHASED ALMOST $1 MILLION OF VANGUARD STOCK. You know, one of the infamous Facebook DARK POOL FUNDS (Please include that link, thanks):

    Koinky dink upon koinky dink in this corruption.

    1. Yes, Cooley Godward LLP is also the law firm, through their "special advisor" to Obama, Donald K. Stern, had recommended Leonard P. Stark to be judge. Stark was being muscled to give Facebook and Pelosi the quid pro quo decision to get his appointment. That is getting more an more obvious. Kappos appears to have been relying on Cooley Godward's entrance into the case to risk moving on all investments out of blue chip IBM stock and into the Vanguard Facebook DARK POOLS. Evidently he believed Cooley would protect his investment, because he only moved AFTER the judge OK'd Cooley to enter the case.


    The Facebook cartel are now pressing to do away with another impediment to their world domination. The Electoral College was put in place specificially to prevent surreptitious groups like them from rigging American elections. They proved in 2008 and 2012 that they could use Facebook demographic data to titillate voting subgroups. Then, by aggregating enough of those subgroups together, they only need to get 5-7 million votes to win. That's what their statistical algorithms told them, and they love their math.

    The Electoral College blunts the cartel's math by not allowing the cartel to amass votes in the urban areas to shout out the rest of the country with their population numbers.

    In other words, the Framers in their wisdom foresaw this day when a powerful cartel might try and manipulate the American masses for greed and power.

    Here's the formula the Electoral College messes up:

    (a) Free Facebook Use =
    (b) FREE DATA about user political preferences (e.g., comments to friends, causes donated to, things you buy, links you share, etc.) =
    (c) Identification of subgroups =
    (d) Custom-designed Executive Orders to pander to subgroups =
    (e) Buy elections through voter manipulation, pandering and titillation based on the FREE DATA.

  6. Powerful Midwest Democrats we have interviewed have named this Facebook Cartel faction within the Democratic Party "The Acela Mafia." The Acela Express train runs between Washington D.C. through New York and Connecticut to Boston, MA. It is interesting that Alan Dershowitz does not seem to be marching in goose step with the predominantly Harvard cronies of this administration who pack the Cartel's train car. The stench of corruption grows ever more pungent over the Charles River (the river running through the Harvard campus).

    Thankfully, American patriots of all political persuasions are starting to get the Cartel's number.

  7. Who has now returned to his Harvard lair to plot while he misleads more promising young minds? The devious Cartel mastermind himself ---- Professor Lawrence Summers... the father of Russian OLIGARCH ALISHER ASMANOV. Obama is obviously protecting him in all these Ukrainian sanctions. Otherwise, he'd get mad and spill the beans on the FACEBOOK CARTEL.

    Do most people know that Summers is one of the owners of SQUARE, the company that processes mobile transactions? These people's appetite for stealing all our personal data is insatiable. I think the Facebook Cartel gave SQUARE to Summers as his reward for making them all rich while he was Obama's bank bailout director in 2008.

  8. "Russia's VKontakte CEO says he was fired, flees Russia", REUTERS, Apr. 22, 2014

    Looks like Obama's bad boys are on the move globally. Presumably they are making hay while the Obama administration still controls our agencies of government. We need patriot bureacrats in these agencies to grow some and stand up for what's right. Rat on these criminals!!! There are no U-Hauls behind your hearses. In the end only your integrity will matter. Your family will ask, "Did he she/do the right thing when it counted?"
